Run rnews -U as the news user. You probably want to run that hourly
Nigel: I already have this running as a cron job hourly.
And I have also throttled the server so no more posts are accepted and
run the command as you suggested as news user
And the articles are still in /var/spool/news/incoming
Nigel: I have tried running the command you suggested without throttle
on the news server and the result is the Same as above.
